Death of a Clown

OCTOBER14 – 23, 2010

By Sebastien Archibald
Produced by ITSAZOO Productions

Meet Roy! He’s a floppy, fun-loving clown born into a rigid and oppressive metropolis. A natural outsider, Roy is forced to suppress his clowning nature and claw his way up the corporate ladder. But when he meets Anna, a sassy clown with radical plans, Roy’s life is thrown into chaos. A hilarious multi-media satire of our corporate world told through the art of clowing.

Advisory: Mature subject matter and strong language.
